In this exciting episode of the show we sit down with UC Davis Ecologist Carson Jeffres and learn about a new fish rearing program that merges agriculture with fisheries science in innovative and amazing ways. We also learn about subduction zones and how they play a role in sustaining a diverse fishery ecosystem.
All fish are the same age. The ones on the left were raised in a hatchery. The fish on the right were raised in a rice field floodplain.
Rice field netted off as rearing habitat for baby salmon.
